    Carnivores should come here and when they do, they should either get Ropa Vieja for a traditional dish or Gaucho steak if they feel more carnivorous. The maduros and yucca fries here were outstanding.

    All you can drink brunch - they only serve you a new drink when you are finished with the other one. Food was actually good, I devoured my beef and rice. Not crowded on a Sunday, perf for boozy brunch

    Absolutely horrible service. We were overcharged. Orders also came out incorrect. When we brought it to the waiter's attention HE SNATCHED the receipt out of my friend's hand and ripped it up.

    All of the shareable items are fantastic. Plus, Tuesday & Thursday nights are dancing nights. Phenomenal dancing. Plus, the barstools are drums!

    Came for brunch - super slow service even though place wasn't full. Disappointed by the empanadas - the ropa vieja is good when nursing a hangover.

    ropa vieja is a dream come true. don't be afraid to abandon your lady manners and dump that rice onto your plate, mix it all up, and eat til your plate's spotless. because that's what i did.

    Chef is either incompetent, vindictive, or both: ordered a steak medium rare, it came medium well. I sent it back, it returned raw. I gave up.
